Haven’t been to la Tavola for about 2 years and I don’t know why! Service was amazing. Never had drinks arrive so quickly. Excellent food and ambiance even though we were in a horrific rain storm. Don’t miss this gem
Very nice place for birthday or anniversary dinner. Following Covid guidelines, ans service was perfect.
Special Abbondanza menu. Fabulous choices, but short term. It helps to be on their mailing list. It was a swell meal and we sampled all the courses. Quite expensive.
Excellent and appreciated the attention to COVID precautions. I felt totally safe and comfortable.
Good meal, good wine. The staff was very accommodating in seating my guest and me before our reservation time.
Molto Monday is such a great time to visit La Tavola. Three different kinds of pasta on the menu for $10 each. We got the carbonara and rigatoni. Both are delicious. The service is always great. There is outdoor seating available as well.
We always have a great experience at La Tavola. The staff is knowledgeable about the food and drinks or they always follow up with answers to questions. The food and drinks are marvelous. This visit I had the special of swordfish on a bed of pureed eggplant and couscous, and my husband had the saltimbocca. Both were scrumptious. They brought us a complimentary dessert because I was celebrating my birthday. Would recommend to everyone.
Yet another great experience at la Tavola! We sat outside and listened to the rain while enjoying our dinner.
Hands down my favorite date night spot. Intimate and comfortable dining room, and the service makes you feel at home.
Good Virginia-Highland restaurant. Good food, good wine, good cocktails. Great management by Beth.
We came here for a special occasion and had an amazing experience. Having lived in places with authentic Italian food, I am very particular, and the food here is excellent. The bolognese is my favorite, it is full of flavor. My date said it tasted exactly like a dish he had in Italy. Even the caesar salad was amazing....and the service was impeccable, which made our night. They are also doing a good job social distancing. We sat on the patio out back, spaced apart from other tables. It was quiet and calm, I think I would rather sit out there from now on. Definitely a great place to go for a night out.
To begin, Tavola is our favorite restaurant. Our experience on Saturday was not good. We both had the Zuppe de pesche and it was sub par. Our server Blake was excellent. We understand that these are very difficult times and will certainly continue to support all of the Fifth Group Restaurants. Judith and Martin Freedland
Top flight Italian food in a welcoming and unpretentious setting.
Great patio and delicious meal! A great cozy spot in the Highlands.
20% Covid surcharge was understandable. When the check arrived the waiter and I attempted to pay with cash the waiter advised us that cash was not accepted. Manager came over to table and defended the policy. Rude manager. Waiter Will is very good. I've been a customer for 15 years and I regret to say that the food was below average this night. Nothing of the three people dining was served hot and their signature dishes were soggy and dripping with excessive oil. We were there two weeks ago and it was delish.
We have really enjoyed this new neighborhood spot. The service is terrific. The food is tasty though not super imaginative. Salumi board is very generous (better than most) and the entrees are basic but good. To be fair we have not been too adventurous in trying the daily specials. My only wish is the wine list could be expanded to include a few not so pricey but good value wines. What if there was a featured wine each week or month?? Or perhaps a specially priced wine each week like one of your competitors has on Mondays? Shared a salad, 1 entree per person and a bottle of nicer wine is $130+ and a service charge. Kind of a lot for a date night :)
We had a lovely meal outside on the patio!
La Tavola has been one of our favorite restaurants for years and our latest outing did not disappoint. We requested seating on the back patio where we found tables were distanced and staff all had masks on. We ordered several appetizers with the grilled calamari being the favorite of the table. All our entrees were delicious. The deserts were delicious as well. We know it is a tough time for small local businesses due to Covid-19 and I want to thank La Tavola for doing their part in helping to make people feel safe while also continuing to serve fantastic food with a wonderful staff. It is a gem in our neighborhood. It was a memorable evening and we'll be back.
The food was outstanding, as it has always been!
It was our first time here in a year due to the pandemic, and we are already planning our next visit. We were able to sit outside, with nice space between tables, and there was hand sanitizer available near the door just inside the entrance and near the door to the outside seating. Inside, tables were skipped to keep people well-spaced also. As always, the service was excellent, from our primary server Emily to the manager who stopped by our table to check on things and wish me a happy birthday. The food was also as tasty as ever, from our Tagliolini pasta (our favorite) to the Veal Saltimbocca. The seasonings and flavors were wonderful and it remains our favorite restaurant in Atlanta. We look forward to going back soon!
Consistently good. Buys on a Monday night. Friendly service and good pasta!
Always a great dinner at LaTavola. I had the Tagliatelle bolognese which is very flavorful and a good portion size. My wife had the consistently outstanding Saltimboca. LaTavola’s servers are very good and give you the time you need to enjoy the meal without feeling rushed. Glad to see that business was fairly good given Covid restrictions.
The service was excellent, starting with how accomodating and nice every one was about moving us to a better table. We were initially seated right in the middle of a high traffic area, both with servers coming and going and people being seated or headed to the restrooms. Before we ordered anything, a booth became available and they asked if we would like to move - they could tell we were ducking everytime a plate of pasta traveled over our heads!! So once we were seated comfortably, they brought us flutes of champagne to acknowledge our upcoming wedding anniversary - a total surprise! They keep records of their customers - we were very impressed. And the food was outstanding - my husband had a ceasar salad and the veal; I had the pork appetizer (that comes with a fabulous little green salad), followed by the mushroom ragu pasta. Our server made great suggestions for wines by the glass. We split the tiramasu, which was an unuasl and delicious variation on the classic. We decided to come back more often after this great experience.
This is a restaurant that prepares unpretentious Italian food that is made beautifully. The environment and service are excellent as you would expect from all Fifth Group locations. For anyone that likes Italian food this is a must-try.
Amazing food and great service. When I booked the reservation online, I did not understand that a tip would be expected on top of a 20% service charge. Would appreciate more clarity about this ahead of time.
Wonderful experience. For those wondering, everyone working in the restaurant was wearing masks, always kept on their mask. Hand sanitizer available to everyone, tables spaced apart and the booths sat every other one . Now the good stuff the food. The pasta was amazing we did the molto Monday selection and the cacio e pepe was everything good . all pasta were amazing. The
salad was so good... great wine selection. And wonderful service from our server Lucas. great night cannot wait to go back and try the new hanger steak on the menu.
Great experience. We sat out in the back patio and were greeted by our server who was spectacular the whole evening. Kept our drinks full, offered suggestions for the menu, and was attentive but not overbearing. Food was excellent as always and will be back soon. In addition, all staff members greeted us and made sure we were satisfied with our experience!!!
We had a great dinner. Our server was great and super knowledgeable and the food was great too. We ordered a variety of apps from the charcuterie board to meatballs. Then a few pastas and entrees for dinner.
Service was excellent. Food was average. The peach compote was delicious.
First time at La Tavola since the pandemic started. Miss and love this restaurant. Definitely felt safe going to dinner. We had patio seating and it was wonderful. They definitely have all the procedures in place to make the dining experience safe. The service is as always one of a kind. Thank you for the amazing job during this difficult times. Blake was our server and he is fabulous.
Love this restaurant—the food and service are always good. Unfortunately, they will not allow you to book an outdoor table. Despite strongly requesting in the reservation, have had to walk away once when arriving for my reservation and being told it would be 30+ minutes for an outside table.
In this most recent trip our wait was only 15 minutes after our reserved time, plus I had a Double Up promotion to use before it expired.
As much I enjoy La Tavola, will not be going back until they allow specifically reserving an outdoor table. Many other restaurants already allow and we will be choosing those.
We had such a lovely evening. All staff were friendly and attentive. Our table was inside - they had socially distant table seating. Lovely and intimate dining room. Our server was knowledgeable and approachable about the food. I would definitley recommend.
Food and service was great. But noisy neighbors at the restaurant next door made the atmosphere less than ideal.
Great anniversary dinner always great food and service
The staff is excellent. We felt comfortable, safe, and had a great time.
The food is outstanding. We can’t wait to return.
Once again, a wonderful meal celebrating the birthday of my daughter. Thankful too for the GF options.
La Tavola has consistently good food, wonderful ambiance (particularly on the patio) and great deals through FGR rewards, Molto Wednesday deal, etc. I particularly appreciated the option to order appetizer portions of the pasta entrees so my date and I could share many dishes - I also appreciate that our waitress accommodated our “tapas” style of eating and staged each course for us. We will be back.
